Many NFL players are garnering attention because of the ongoing controversial movement involving the national anthem. Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert recently spoke out about why he decides to stand as the anthem plays, adding that he respects other players’ decisions not to. While Eifert’s professional life is booming, many are becoming curious about his personal life. Are Tyler Eifert and Rachael Kimack still dating each other? Who is Tyler Eifert’s girlfriend? We’ve got the scoop!

Eifert posted an essay titled “Why I Stand,” in which he details why he still stands for the national anthem before each game. “I stand because I want to honor the people putting their lives on the line for me on a daily basis in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard.”

Eifert also wrote, “As I stand for the national anthem, I don’t want there to be questions of why I am standing or if I will kneel. I want there to be a clear understanding of why I stand. I want there to be a clear understanding of why I respect our flag and why I love our country.” He concluded his essay with, “I respect my fellow players right to kneel during the national anthem, but I hope everyone now knows why I stand, and respects that as well.”

The tight end has been playing with the Cincinnati Bengals since 2013. And many fans have been wondering about his personal life, especially since he posted his essay online.

Tyler Eifert’s Dating Timeline

Currently, there are no details about who Tyler Eifert’s girlfriend is, and it doesn’t look like the football player is eager to tell us. He was reportedly dating Rachael Kimack in 2015, but it’s not known if the two are still together.

If you look at Eifert’s Instagram account, there are no pictures of Kimack, which leads many to believe that they have split. However, that doesn’t mean that the two aren’t still dating. But, it could also be possible that Eifert has a new girlfriend in 2017!

Rachael Kimack

Kimack was born on July 31, 1991. She is from Carmel, Indiana, and graduated from Purdue University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Health and Kinesiology. While there, she played on the school’s soccer team. However, she was sidelined after an injury during her freshman season and played 14 games as a reserve role in her sophomore year.

In high school, Kimack was named the Indianapolis Star’s All-City player three times. Currently, she is a sales associate at Medtronic Spine & Biologics, where she has been for a little over a year now.

Although there are no details of how Rachael Kimack and Tyler Eifert met, news of them dating was widely reported two years ago. But whether they are still together now is unknown.
